    How do you explain to your wife what you have been doing for the last 5 years.

    and to his kids too. maybe he hit his head and had amnesia or something. if it were my Dad and he disappeared for that long without a medical condition that caused him to forget us, I would never speak to him again.

    should be interesting to follow this story.

    wowsers.

    So you mean this was less a case of doing a Reggie Perrin and more a Harold Bishop? :p :p :p

    Thats exactly what I was thinking.

    Would be interesting to know the full details but I doubt we will ever get the true story.

    I think he was hanging out with Steve Fossett, or helping Reggie Perrin run the Grot Shop.

    The Mirror has got its hands on a photo – albeit an unverified one – that apparently shows our kayak-happy friend with his wife in Panama last summer.

    Hmm...

    Not to be one who believe what the mirror types, that still looks pretty bad...

    And that the Police say they had re-started an investigation 3months ago, around the time the widow sold up the UK property and moved to Panama.

    I hope they've learnt their lesson when it comes to faking photos for their front page.

    None the less, things aren't looking good for the couple in question. It is all rather suspicious...

    hello, hello, hello what’s going on here then?

    to me, it looks like the cops are doing bugger all themselves, new investigation going back 3 months was started by the vigilant bank informing police because of terrorism/money laundering laws, he gave himself up, the evidence for his arrest was the Mirror pic and now they are showing the blokes pic to the media and asking if anyone knows anything please contact them!

    Wouldn't you just hate to be in the papers?

    God they support you right up until they can spin something round so it'll look dodgy, never trust the media, they'll love you one minute and leave you for dead the next. The maddie story is a perfect example of this.

    I'm very hypocritical though, going to be taking media at uni... :D
